Casey Anthony's Attorney

Kudos to Amanda Knox's Parents

For Supporting Her

10/10/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Knox
Casey Anthony and Amanda Knox have a lot in common -- they were both recently freed from jail, they're both big celebrities now and they're both hot. What they don't have in common ... supportive parents, at least according to Casey Anthony's lawyer.

Jose Baez tells TMZ he was very happy for Amanda Knox and her family when the verdict was overturned. Baez says he watched the verdict and it was " a very surreal moment for me because I remembered being in that situation -- where a young woman's life hung in the balance -- and in a split second, her life was given back to her."

Baez says he felt Amanda's family played a key role in things, saying they should "be applauded" for sticking with her through the entire process -- unlike Casey's parents, who did not support her and instead, he feels, "hurt her case."

In the end, Baez says they're just a pair of "all-American girls."

There is very little that is common amongst these two cases. Casey Anthony, the perpetual liar, accused her father and brother of molesting her. She also accused her father of knowing and participating in the cover up of the child's death. Also, the mom continued lie to the press and even on the jury stand to take the heat off of her daughter. Amanda Knox did not throw her family under the bus to try and dodge her charges.

I am astounded that Jose Baez made this asinine comment. Perhaps, if Casey Anthony did not lie about her family, they would have been supportive. However, he should be cautious because I am sure Casey Anthony will make up some lies (i.e. affair, sexual harassment, etc.) about him in the future and profit from it. He better watch out because she will jeopardize both his personal and professional life.

How in the world can Biaz say her parents hurt her case. He and Casey were the ones who through the whole family under the bus and he expects them to support her!! He was the one her ruined her relationship with her parents by his opening statement. OMG they both of reality issues and both need a tharepist!! If my daughter accused me of molesting her and being their when my grand daughter died and not calling 911 and burying them in the woods There is no way in hell I would support her either!! Biaz is not helping Casey at all with this statements! Her makes her look worse every time he opens his mouth!!!!!!!

Baez will do anything to keep his name in the news. Let somebody come along that can keep him on the front page and he will drop Casey like a hot potato.

for real    

You can not compare Amanda Knox to Casey Anthony. Amanda did not kill anyone. She was rightfully found innocent and aquitted. Casey on the other had did kill someone, her daughter. She was wrongfully found not guilty. Big difference Jose Baez. You really need to stop trying to play the media. Your client is guilty.

Jose should be disbarred. He is an insult to our intelligence. Did Amanda Knox blame her parents for killing her roommate. If he thinks that these two cases are similar, he should be wearing a wig and sunglasses just like Casey.

O.M.G.!!! That publicity-seeking, poor excuse for a man, actually
is comparing the two situation? How sick must he be?
Please notice, Mr. Lawyer, that no self-respecting person will ever want to be your client. You're stuck with murderers, thieves, and child molesters, for sure.
What the hell is wrong, with your thinking?

Casey Anthony was acquitted in spite of Jose Baez, not because of him. The twelve village idiots from Pinellas County are soley responsible for her release. Baez is too ignorant and arrogant to understand that and continues to flaunt his supersized ego.

Stupid People Hater    

Well, in casey Anthony;s case she obviously did it. The ignorant jurors of America found her not guilty. In Amanda's case it is less clear and being that we are half way around the world there is absolutely no way to make an informed decision on her. There is simply too much media interference to know what is and what is not true.
